Rachel and Brendon still together, will appear on Bold and the Beautiful

Big Brother 12‘s showmance has turned into a real relationship, or at least, it hasn’t crumbled yet, as Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas are still together. The couple will appear on The Bold and the Beautiful late next month, on Oct. 25 and 26, playing a waitress and a bartender respectively. Really.

Rachel told Entertainment Weekly that “Everyone wants to know when there will be a proposal and a wedding. We are head over heels in love. I’m so lucky to be with him. I foresee a long future together. He is my missing puzzle piece!” She also said that fans have been “so supportive. I was shocked. Everyone hated me in the house and I was convinced everyone in America hated me. But coming back to Vegas, everyone was so welcoming and supportive.”
